Subject: Good one.
Subject: The Rainbow Makers.
I had a feeling that it was going to be a good show,but not THIS good. Proto - 81 Dead. Energetic,playful,.. I could go on and on,but you don't want to read what I think - just download this ( and the other Rainbow nights ) and lose yourself in the music.
One strange thing,I remember getting all excited when the boards of these shows became available,and then rather dissapointed when I heard them. For my money,you should get hold of the best audience recordings that you can - they capture the sound of these nights superbly.
Subject: Is that the infamous "Damnit, WIse"?
As far as the show goes, it is what I think of as the quintessential audience tape: crowd noise, distance from the stage, etc. I like it and will pull it (or rather, my son will). It's all '81!
One strange thing I noticed was at the start of China Cat, they are still playing Let It Grow, then WHAM! they segue into China. Is it me, or is that about the fastest transition ever?
Subject: This show is amazing
The Althea from this show has to be heard to be believed. The Let It Grow is a standout, and if there's a better China/Rider, I'd like to hear it. I'll put this Jack Straw up against any other version.
Check this show out - you won't regret it.
